All I Want for Christmas

Dear Santa,

Instead of toys, trucks and the usual boy stuff, I wanted to ask you for something a little different this year.

All I want for Christmas is to be treated like everybody else.

I’m just a regular little boy after all!

It makes me sad to miss out on things. I want so much to be welcomed and included in ALL school and church activities.

I want to be included in sports teams and clubs at school.

I really want to be invited to parties and dances and just hang out with friends.

I don’t talk much so it’s hard for me to tell people how I’m feeling. But my parents know when I’m sad, and they hurt for me.

My mama cries a lot of tears for me.

So Santa, instead of toys this year, can you help me spread the word about autism, Bardet Biedl Syndrome and all the other syndromes and diseases affecting my friends?

Maybe if YOU tell people that we are just regular kids they will listen to you.

You are Santa after all!

Maybe you could tell them that yes, we are special, but that’s a good thing!

But we just want friends and want to be included like everyone else.

And Santa, if it wouldn’t be too much trouble and you could swing it, a new iPad would be nice too!

Love, David
XOXOXO

My name is Maxie McGlohon and I live in NC. I have a precious 12 year old son with autism and a rare genetic syndrome called Bardet-Biedl Syndrome. With this syndrome, we are being told that our son may go blind by his teenage years, on top of his autism. We were completely beaten down eight years ago when we first received his diagnoses, but our little family of three has really come so far. You can follow our journey on my website, Hanging 11 With David, or on Facebook.
